Speaker: Muaz Mian Short Abstract: At University of Washington Center for Web and Data Science we are developing a web application that will allow data scientists and domain experts to explore the data without having any knowledge on how to write SQL queries. This web application is being developed using jQuery to provide a drag and drop feature for populating values for a field and selecting a value will generate statistics and providing visualizations using D3.js to enhance user experience. Such tools will give the luxury to explore the data efficiently and identity good datasets. The goal for this application is to be independent from how is data stored at back end, whether it’s a database or some distributed file system divided on multiple nodes.
